Private Farm Engagement - Rayanne & Warren - Calgary Wedding Photographer

It was a beautiful summer evening on a private farm just south of Calgary. There were plenty of horses, large lush fields, a long tree lined driveway. There was an old red barn, an adorable little pooch (named Rosie) and a gorgeous couple; who are so incredibly in love!

To say it was the perfect setting would be an understatement. First we went down to a little camping area that Rayanne and her family used to visit at the back of the property. There was a sweet little pebble shore line and lots of shade. Rayanne and Warren brought 2 outfits for their session (which I highly recommend). They opted for the more casual outfit of the two to start and I think it was perfect for the backdrop they chose!

Can we just take a minute and talk about this girl's hair?! STUNNING!

I love when I get to work with couples who are little nervous in the beginning of their session (okay, so that's 99% of people, lets be honest!) and then the longer we shoot, the more they relax and open up. That's when the magic really happens! Just like with these two; you can easily see how they started let loose and connect more and more as the session went on... :)

I love shooting from different angles. It gives clients more variety in their gallery and also allows me to get creative; often resulting in some of my fave images like the one above! :)

The light was on point for the entire session!

Then it was time to head up to the farm. And time for an outfit change!

If you know me well, you know I love animals at sessions and having these horses here was a dream!

Rayanne's beautiful dress has been the topic of conversation anytime I've shared photo's from their session. The style, the color; it was suited to her perfectly and was a big favorite among a lot of my brides-to-be!

Told you that light was amazing!

All in all, this session was beautiful. It is still to this day one of my favorites and I cannot wait for these two to get married in a few months! I'll sign off now, but enjoy the rest of the gallery as my words can do these two no justice!

Much love - Melanie Xx
